The bike gnomes are out there again criticizing The Bulldog for raising the issue of licensing, road-rule enforcement, education and fines.
Oh dear me. Why should cyclists help pay for bike infrastructure when other people will do it for them? And why should bikes adhere to the rules of the road? Cars don’t follow the rules and they get ticketed. Bikes? Well they’re different.
Sure many people would squawk when they’ve got a sweet deal and someone suggests that the deal is too sweet.
And that’s what our cycling enthusiasts are doing. Their devotion to cycling is cult-like. Love, peace, harmony and environmental bliss through cycling. But don’t touch our sweet deal or we’ll get nasty.
Case in point:
That’s quite a snarky little tweet, Erinn. That’s the way to convince people of the veracity of your argument. Alienate them.
Really, Erinn the only mistake in the two tweets was The Bulldog’s “sagging readership”. Oh dear, really? The mighty pooch’s readership increased by one-third in June with the advent of a number of new features.
Really the only question in your tweet is your inability to get your facts straight in 140 characters.
But there’s more … what a surprise:
Avery maintains the site The Vehicular Cyclist … now there’s a page-turner of a title.
The Vehicular Cyclist should carry the warning “Do not read while operating heavy equipment”.
Still one shouldn’t be snide. Having glanced at The Vehicular Cyclist, your agent is under-estimating Avery’s expertise in “yawn” material. The man knows dull.
And then we have rather contrasting opinions here. Avery says the post is dull. Erinn says The Bulldog is pandering to the cycling crowd to raise its circulation. That would make it interesting.
You folks really need to get together on this because The Bulldog is getting conflicting guidance and knows not what to do.
Or you folks are just mad about paying extra for things that you use and many others do not.
